Along came a spider

This past weekend, my youngest child saw a brown spider about the size of a nickel sitting in the kid’s toy food down in our basement and therefore ran to me for help. With it resting quietly inside their toy blender, I took a piece of cardboard, placed it on top and did the old catch and release outside.

Now while I don’t think it was the ever popular Brown Recluse, I also didn’t take the time to fetch my guidebook to look it up.  The reason being I didn’t want to end up getting bit like Jack Landers in his story over at the New York Times entitled “Dancing with Black Widow Spiders” and not that I would have, I’ve just never been that fond of spiders.
